FCX FireTech2 Crosby Hip Escape System
Quality components are the backbone of any kit or system, and Sterling has been making the best for over 20 years. However, simply having good pieces is not enough. They need to be thoughtfully integrated to ensure they function efficiently. By choosing a Sterling kit or system, you can be certain that the components will perform flawlessly together, saving time and effort regardless of the job at hand.FCX Device

Safe, controlled descent is critical to escape systems. It’s also important that the descent control device is auto locking, easy to use with either hand, and has good modulation characteristics.
is Sterling’s newest and most advanced descent control device. It uses a unique cam feature that allows smooth modulation so the user can easily control the speed of descent with one hand and a click-to-neutral feature allows for easy horizontal movement. Side rails prevent glove and sill interference and a spring-loaded handle stays out of the way until needed, which prevents snagging and tangling. NFPA 1983: Escape Descent Device.
The SafeD carabiner
is made from lightweight aluminum and features a removable captive eye pin allowing a rope with a sewn eye to be attached to it at any time. These rugged aluminum carabiners are the critical junction between the harness and the descent device. Pin prevents unauthorized disassembly and keeps the carabiner oriented to prevent cross-loading. NFPA 1983.
The Crosby Hook
is the original portable anchor hook designed for the FDNY PSS. This forged alloy steel hook facilitates anchoring at the window or point of egress. A high strength rating ensures the hook will not deform even when fully loaded at the tip, or when exposed to extreme heat. The geometry of the Crosby hook offers the most security for placement on any surface. NFPA 1983: Escape Anchor. MBS Rating: 4,945 lbs / 22 kN. Weight: 14.2 lbs
FireTech2 Escape Rope
is a 7.5 mm Fire Escape Rope with Technora®/Technora Core/Sheath. An improved construction on the popular FireTech makes the FireTech2 slightly lighter weight and gives it a softer hand. Compatible with F4™ and new FCX™ descent devices. 100% Technora rope offers the highest strength, longest burn-through time and best abrasion resistance. NFPA 1983: Fire Escape.
The F4-50 Hip Bag
is a compact, hip-style bag and designed to fit any belt or harness. It easily stores 50 feet of FireTech, EscapeTech, SafeTech or PER, which is then enclosed by an inside flap. The hook or carabiner anchor stores in the covered pouch and the FCX is held on top of the rope flap with a heavy duty elastic. Two anti-debris flaps contain all of the components under a large outer flap, held securely closed by velcro.
